85- year-old record producer, Quincy Jones had a “surprise family intervention” with his daughters who felt the need to speak to him about the effects of his comments in his previous interviews. In the end, Quincy found himself very apologetic.
On Thursday morning, Jones issued an apology for his outlandish and personal remarks in his interview with Vulture and GQ in late January. He stated that he stopped drinking a few years back and his memory of past events is not as sharp as it should be, causing the pictures he painted to be a little blurry.
“I am sorry to anyone whom my words offended, and I am especially sorry to my friends who are still here with me and those who aren’t,” Jones said in his apology.
Quincy made it clear that he already reached out to many of his friends who were mentioned in the interviews so that he could personally apologize. “These friends are like blood family to me.” Just a little recap, two statements that stood out during his interviews were the late Richard Pryor and the late Marlon Brando’s alleged sexual relationship, and him calling The Beatles “no- playing mother-ckers.
